A Plan for You
The Four-Year Career Development Plan is curated to progress with students as they explore and experiment. By design, it will help students reach important milestones.
Career Services is a partner each step of the way. As students clarify their goals, Career Services advisers â€” dedicated practitioners and industry specialists â€” guide and support them.
Your Four-Year Journey
The plan centers around eight career development areas.
- First-years begin by cataloging their strengths, interests, values, and identities with career advisers, and exploring broad career areas through alumni-led panels and informational interviews. Students practice basic career skills, like writing a rÃ©sumÃ©.
- Sophomores grow their awareness of industries and roles, working directly with a career adviser and participating in alumni programming, such as SophoMORE Connections. Developing networking skills and learning how to apply to internships helps students land a professional experience for the summer.
- Juniors hone their interests and focus on pursuing research or a summer internship, often supported by alumni. Advisers coach students on strengthening interviewing and networking skills. Students take advantage of opportunities provided through ÌÇÐÄvlog¹ÙÍø to build industry-based skills and knowledge.
- Seniors focus on applying for employment, graduate or professional school, and fellowships. Leveraging the knowledge and skills they built throughout their time at ÌÇÐÄvlog¹ÙÍø, they are poised to evaluate offers for a fit with their academic and career interests and personal needs â€” and ultimately, to launch their postgraduate career with confidence.
This is What Success Looks Like
Career development at ÌÇÐÄvlog¹ÙÍø means building relationships, not just a rÃ©sumÃ©. Students that engage with Career Services are greeted with an abundance of knowledge and opportunity, including more than 200 formal recruiting partners â€” Amazon, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, Goldman Sachs, Google, Mass General Hospital, National Geographic, NBCUniversal, and Teach For America.
Through the four-year career development plan, students leave ÌÇÐÄvlog¹ÙÍø with the knowledge, confidence, skills, and experience needed to cultivate rewarding professional lives.
